Last summer my parent's pup, Gracie, ran away from home. For 9 days, family and friends drove around yelling her name in hopes she'd pop her head out of a bush and come galloping their way. It wasn't until a neighbor girl was watering an out of town friend's garden that Gracie was found cowering in a corner. When my mom got the phone call they dropped everything to reunite with their little fur baby. That following weekend my parents threw a "we found her" party to thank all those who helped search for her. It was a really special time to just soak in how awesome and diverse of a community that dogs can bring together.
